Convert from Absolute to Relative Paths

Think of them as handler locals that
one, are defined as the default at the start of the handler
two, can be set/reset affecting only the current handler
three, expire when the handler does.
This makes calling a series of functions easier, such as
set the itemDel to tab -->does not matter outside of this handler
set the defaultFolder to "Volumes/user/Documents/" --> does matter
put calcPercent(bytesToK(bytesLoaded(length of imgVar)), freeSpaceOnHD())
I don't know all the properties that do this, but it is easy to check.
Maybe the local setting properties are listed somewhere, but I have not seen
